The movie is based on the true story of British boxer Randolph Turpin who was world middleweight champion for two months in the 1950s, after unexpectedly beating the legendary Sugar Ray Robinson.
Turpin became an instant national hero. His win over Robinson gave him such celebrity that even many people who were not boxing fans knew who he was.
When he signed for a rematch with Robinson and chose Gwrych Castle near Abergele in North Wales to train, the castle was constantly hounded by fans and tourists.
Richard Campbell, Brighton Film School"s Business and Marketing Manager, said:
"Although its an industry-led professional feature film, many of the crew positions were filled by students who are currently studying their BTEC Filmmaking HND Level 4/5 and this is a fantastic example of a creative collaboration between industry, Brighton Film School and City College. "
Two City College BTEC Level 3 Filmmaking students gained a week of invaluable industry experience during the shoot, working alongside students
from Brighton Film School.
"Working on this project with Brighton Film School gave our students a fantastic opportunity to get involved in a real-life movie shoot", said Film-making Tutor Sam Catling.
"'64 Days' looks like a really exciting project and it's great that they'll be able to mention their involvement in it on their CVs."
